The Great War was the opening shot of the tumultuous 20th Century. As empires were built and rapidly fell, World War I ushered in a rush of technological advances and set in motion geopolitical changes that are still felt today. The Chattanooga Theatre Centre, which has been educating and entertaining school-age audiences for over 30 years, brings you this entertaining, one-man show, featuring local military historian Louis Varnell who takes students through the causes of the war, the technological advances of the age, the realities of life in the trenches and the ultimate outcome of the “War to End All Wars.”
